Ok.. So basically it has to be manual or dynamically calculated via development before presenting the button on the back-end. Gotcha.
Hmmm… that brings up another question. Does E-Member or E-Store show me when a member has paid for their membership? Not only the first time; but a renewal as well. If so, where is that data stored in the database.
The reason I ask is that I could write a function that would tell me when the user paid last and the current membership level. I could use that data to calculate a pro-rated amount and then create a button to cancel and create a new subscription. The new subscription would have a “trial period for a year” at the discounted rate (the money we owe the subscriber) with the remaining years at the regular rate. That is just a thought. I have not fully thought through a solution yet.
But I would like to know where I could get that data if I needed it.July 22, 2012 at 12:03 am in reply to: eStore – Subscription Variation – Recurring Billing Amount Field #47566
Excellent! I did understand that part. It seems as though the recurring billing field becomes invalid on a recurring subscription with a variation. What goes in that field? Based on your post, it seems irrelevant, however, it can’t be zero either.
As a developer I totally understand what you are saying. As a trainer and professional speaker, I see where the ambiguity of the “recurring amount field” could get confusing to the user.
Please answer this question… as I understood your reply but it still has not been answered:
So, what do I put in the field? The Base Price? Or It doesn’t make a difference as long as I put something greater than zero because as a subscription (with variation or without) that field is irrelevant anyway?
The reason I dont want 8 buttons, is because I would prefer not to put 8 membership types on the page. I would just like to have 4 and 4 buttons. Its just cleaner and a better user experience.
As an aside: I would suggest two things (trainer hat is on) Create a video or educational document for all combinations that can be selected. Especially on the payment page because, in business, once you mess up someone’s money you are OUT!
Second: Make fields or sections that are irrelevant based on previous selections hidden or disabled.July 20, 2012 at 6:25 pm in reply to: eStore – Subscription Variation – Recurring Billing Amount Field #47564
This actually means that I have to create 8 products. There are 4 products with 2 levels each.
I am actually trying to get the same answer from this article;
but the question was never answered:
What do I put in the Recurring Billing Amount Field?
Do I really need to create 8 buttons? I thought subscription renewals were based on the previous amount billed. If that is the case; then the Recurring Billing Amount Field should be irrelevant for subscriptions. If that is not the case then variation does not truly work for subscriptions. Right?August 19, 2011 at 4:38 pm in reply to: Player for Amazon S3 Protected files that Works on IPAD like Flowplaye #35556
Awesome… works like a charm… Next question… is it possible to have a Protected Amazon S3 play within the page instead of a POPUP. Major request of several clients.
